The winners were recognized at Canadian Western Agribition in Regina, Saskatchewan on Friday, November 24. The Canadian Angus Association congratulates the winners and thanks all who participated in the Gold Show program in 2017. The ‘All-Star’ awards were first presented in 2012 making this year the sixth annual recognition.
The Gold Show program was developed in 1989 by the Canadian Angus Association to provide an incentive for breeders to move between regions to show cattle. Gold Show winners are determined by the animals that earned the highest number of points in three Gold Shows. If an animal accumulated points in more than three Gold Shows, the points from their best three shows were used in determining end-of-year awards.
The Canadian Angus Association is Canada’s largest purebred beef breed organization. The Association represents more than 2,000 members across Canada for the purposes of registering and recording the pedigrees of purebred Angus cattle in the closed HerdBook and promoting the breed across Canada. The member-approved mandate is to maintain breed registry, breed purity and provide services that enhance the growth and position of the Angus breed.
